The cot defined does not fit in a 4 person tent. You need a family size tent. You also need the mattress pad to complete the cot otherwise you have the bar in the middle which is a little uncomfortable.
This cot is small and light weight while still being extremely comfortable. It fits in my smaller shorter dome tent easier than the larger cots. My kids like to sleep on it at home if we have guests using their beds. It is more comfortable than the military style cots as it does not have the metals bars at the top and bottom. If you are camping with other people that are sleeping on air mattresses this cot will allow you to participate in the conversation without feeling literally looking down on them. It was a little tricky to setup the first time, but easy after that. I have had it for six months without any problems. It was a great price and less expensive than the full sized cots, so I would definitely buy it again from Overstock.com. *By submitting a review, each employee received a sweepstakes entry*
